Four years ago a lot of people fell in love with Barack Obama. To them he wasn’t just a candidate or even the best candidate, he was a once-in-a-lifetime inspirational leader who they expected to bring momentous change. No one could have lived up to the expectations they had for him. Obama has failed miserably.
I have no illusions about Mitt Romney. I know he is a moderately conservative Republican. He is not a secret liberal. But I did not vote for ideology this year, I voted for character and competence. I believe that Mitt Romney has plenty of both.
I know that Mitt Romney doesn’t have any superpowers. But we don’t need a hero, we need someone who can get shit done. We have a lot of problems facing this country. I don’t expect miracles, I expect progress. I don’t expect to agree with everything he does but I am willing to give him four years to show us what he can do. At the end of four years I will decide whether to keep him around for another term or replace his ass too.
I believe that Mitt Romney is a good man. I hope he is up to the job. In a few hours we’ll see if the country agrees with me.
